'One Chance': Supreme Courts sacks a rep member and orders him to refund all salaries and allowances.


Background
  • Sopuluchukwu Ezeonwuka, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker, representing Orumba north/south, Anambra federal constituency at the House of Representatives has been removed by the supreme court. 
  • He has now been ordered to within  90 days, refund all monies collected while acting in his capacity as a law maker. This includes salaries and allowances.
Our take on the matter
  • It will be so much easier for a camel to pass through the needle eye than for his lawmaker to refund all the accrued salaries and allowances. 
Conclusion
  • Election laws in Nigeria should be amended to ensure that election disputes are concluded before swearing in to avoid cases like this.
